Media Critiques

Failings of the news media, both conservative, liberal and moderate, have contributed to division and anger in our nation. Therefore, this website will include critiques of the contemporary news media.

Since problems with the right wing news media have been well documented elsewhere in sources including Media Matters for America, I will focus more on problems with what is commonly known as the liberal media. My sense is that they are the more serious problem today.

For reasons like false equivalency and journalistic traditions explained in sources like What Liberal Media and elsewhere the mainstream media has lost respect in many quarters, earning nicknames like “fake news” and “lamestream media.” with this its ability to develop consensus has been lessened. In many ways, they are part of the problem. These posts will be filed in the category Media Critiques.
